Update: Another picture has surfaced over at IT168, and this time the Xperia duo name is quite clear underneath.

sony-ericsson-xperia-duo_2

A mysterious device that most are pegging as the upcoming Sony Xperia Duo has made a cameo over at Chinese website IT168. Rumor has it the the Duo moniker suggests that this will be the first dual-core device from Sony, but we have nothing that confirms (or denies) that info, so take it at face value.

If you picked up the recently released Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, then there's a good chance that you want some accessories to go along with it. Right now, if you use the coupon code GOOGLEIO2011 at Sammy's official online store, then you'll score a cool 30% off of all accessories. There is a catch, though - 60% of the currently released accessories are out of stock at the moment. However, if you're in the market to grab the stylus, vehicle charger, travel charger, or data cable - then you're in luck, as those are the only items currently in stock.

sprint_HTC_evo_4g-540x470

If you've been thinking about jumping from your current carrier to Sprint, then you may want to take advantage of this deal: one of the most popular Android phones of all time, the HTC EVO 4G, is now free with a new two-year agreement from Wirefly and Amazon Wireless. This is by far the lowest price that we've ever seen the EVO go for, and even though it's over a year old, it still rivals many of the phones currently being released.

Update: It looks like Moto killed this deal. The coupon code no longer works, and the form has been removed.

If you bought a XOOM, the chances are that you need some accessories to go along with it. Motorola sees that need (and wants to make money), so until June 26, 2011, if you fill out this form, then you'll receive a coupon good for 50% off XOOM accessories at the Motorola store.

If you've been patiently waiting to start renting movies on your XOOM Wi-Fi, then your moment has arrived. According to this tweet from Motorola, you can now rent movies via the Android Market - granted you're not rooted, of course. It looks like the Movies tab still isn't appearing directly in the Android Market, but all you need to do is download and install the official Videos app from Google and you'll be ready to rent and watch all the movies you can handle.

We first told you back in March that Sony would be bringing Gingerbread to non-carrier-branded Xperia X10 units, with a late Q2/early Q3 arrival. With the end of Q2 quickly approaching, Sony posted a new entry on its Product Blog this morning stating that "the current plan is [to] start the roll-out [at] the beginning of August," which hits the early Q3 target date right on the head.

This update will include the same camera app that is found in the Éclair version (this has apparently been a pretty big issue amongst X10 owners), as well as a lot of features found on the newer Xperia phones - like Facebook inside Xperia, the updated UI with pinch-to-overview, and an integrated EQ in the music player.

It looks like Sammy has been working hard to bring Gingerbread to all of the Galaxy S devices, as an official build for the Epic 4G leaked over at SamFirmware this morning. Much like the recent Captivate Gingerbread leak, this is an early build, but judging by current reports, it seems to be pretty solid.

Just like this leak, you must flash this via Odin. Here's a quick example of the process:

If you're ready to give it a shot, head over to XDA for download.

You know that music thing people like to listen to? Well, Yahoo! seems to think that it may be the way back into users' hearts, as it just released a music-identifying, brain-crawling, news-delivering music player for Android powered by Instinctiv. It's called Yahoo! Play, and it has some basic, run-of-the-mill features, but it also has some... interesting features. Let's take a look.

First up, it has a feature called Identify, which is basically a Shazam or SoundHound clone: it listens to the track in question, then tells you what it is.

Ah, Angry Birds... it seems like it was only yesterday that the beta version of AB landed in the Android Market. Those crazy birds have come so far in such a short amount of time, and now they're back again with the newest update to the series entitled Mine and Dine. We already showed you the teaser trailer for this update a little over a week ago, but it never hurts to see it again, so here it is:

This update takes to the underground to bring 15 all-new levels of bird-slinging action to your device.

Internet auctionhouse eBay has pushed an update to its official Android app today that brings a number of long-desired features, including a slew of seller features. You can now list an item from start-to-finish, and every thing in between, all without ever touching a computer.

  • Quickly list an item from start to finish on your phone and include up to 8 photos
  • Use the integrated barcode scanner from RedLaser to prefill item details when listing an item
  • Revise an item from your Active Selling list
  • Relist an item from your Unsold list
  • Sell one like this feature available when viewing a similar item on eBay
  • Schedule an auction to start immediately or choose a later date
  • End an active auction
  • Mark an item as shipped
  • Contact the buyer
  • Updated home screen
  • View your own feedback ratings and recent comments from eBay members
  • More options for refining your search results: condition, free shipping, location, completed listings and sold items only
  • Fix for issue that restricted bidding for users on specific carriers/devices
  • Other bug fixes and improvements

Unfortunately, as you can see, the new selling features are only available in the US and UK at the moment, with "support for more countries coming soon."

The listing in the Web Market hasn't been update as of right now, but you should be able to pull this update just fine from the Mobile Market or App Brain using the widget below.
